Are all studios on board?
At $500 a showing, the studios really don't care if this makes it or not. It certainly is not going to have any impact on box office or future disc sales at that price. As long as they deem the security secure and Prima is paying the price set by the studios for the content, they should continue to supply the pipeline.
The problem here is I can't see how Prima is going to make it. While I don't know what their cost is to license the material, from my 25+ years in the Hollywood television business I can tell you Prima is not making much of a profit here renting the viewing material. And lets also realize the time to disc release is getting shorter and shorter.
Ok, it's better than BluRay. Is it $500 better for a limited rental versus an owned* BluRay and can the user base support the business model? Not a chance IMPO.
*OK so the content is always owned by the copyright holder, I just own the plastic disc. But I can still play a Bluray anytime I want as many times as I want for $29 first release. $12 three months later at Costco!
